Well, Ive been on the CD diet for just over 7 months now and have lost so far, 6 stones. BUT I now find myself thinking more and more about stopping this diet and now just eating healthily. I originally got on this diet as I was so big I was in the "candidate for a heart-attack" region so now after losing 6 stones, even though I am not healthy according to all the "experts" I am no where near in the danger zone I was before. And, to be honest, I just want to eat now. I feel like, in between meals I now want to eat, say a banana or something else healthy. I dont want to move up to the meal stages of this diet just to have food. I am on SS+ at the moment so I do have a small meal at night. Im just missing being able to have something nice to eat, as a treat, when I want it. And Im now thinking, well now Im not in danger any more, why not come off this extreme diet and just eat healthily. I am now down to 16st 2lbs. My original goal was to get down from my starting point of 22st 3 down to 16st. Completed. Then I re-assessed and made a further goal of getting down to 14st - I dont know whether to do that on this diet or to try to do that by just eating healthily on WeightWatchers (I loved WW before this diet, but needed a fast loss, thats why I done this diet.) After 7 months, not sure I can take much longer (how bad does that sound.) Please help - what are your opinions ?
